Chunky Sweaters for Winter Dressing (and Dressing Up!)

Let’s be honest, living in Toronto in the winter is cold!

Throughout the years, I have learned to make a few wardrobe investments – a good warm coat and a number of cozy sweaters. But when you have someplace nice to go in the winter, dressing for it can be a pain.  You want to look cute without freezing – but how?!! The colour – that pale blush pink – and the knit style was just perfect!

I found this chunky knit from H&M.  I loved it the moment I saw it! 

Chunky knits can sometimes be a bit tricky. You want the proportions to be just right otherwise it just looks sloppy.

My favourite way of dressing up a chunky sweater is with a chic leather mini skirt.

I love shirt skirts as I think it suits my 5’3” frame best.

I did the half tuck with this cozy sweater as it shows off the details of the entire outfit the best.

As it is winter here in Toronto, I obviously opted for a pair of knee-high leather boots in the same shade of brown as my leather skirt.

This is a perfect outfit for casual winter get-togethers!
